This week sees the return one of the great British sporting events of the year: Wimbledon. For us, Wimbledon means two things – tennis, and picnics. Whether you are on Henman Hill soaking up the atmosphere, at home enjoying your garden or having a day out in the country and catching the match coverage when you get home, a hearty picnic is a fantastic treat the whole family can enjoy this summer.
One of the more recent additions to our website is our collection of outdoor dining country gifts. We have brought together only the best picnic blankets and cool bags, and we even have a high-end picnic trolley which includes everything needed for a luxury meal for the family.
The Gourmet Trotter comprises three modules stylishly designed in tweed and leather on a modified golf trolley. Combining style with convenience, each module contains everything you need for a luxury picnic; including stainless steel bowls, cutlery, porcelain plates and bowls, tumblers, glasses, salt and pepper grinders and more! There’s really too much packed into this picnic set for me to list here, but a full run down of the contents can be found on our website. All you need to add is some delicious food and the Gourmet Trotter can be easily packed into the car for season after season of great days out - this picnic set really is a fantastic country gift and makes an investment that the generations of a family can enjoy together.
For a more simple affair, one of our picnic blankets is perfect for a picnic in the sunshine or simply for taking to a sporting event like Wimbledon. They even feature a waterproof layer, which makes these picnic rugs perfect for the unpredictable British summer. The 'Polo' picnic rug is in a soft and traditional country tartan pattern, and it rolls up neatly and closes with leather straps so it's perfect for impromptu days out or a refreshing picnic at the end of a long walk.
Why not have a browse through our range of picnic rugs and al fresco dining accessories? You are sure to find something which will make a delightful country gift that the whole family will enjoy this summer.
Enjoy the tennis folks, and that includes indulging in some strawberries and cream in the sunshine – whether you are at Wimbledon or not!
